A Filipino-Canadian singer schools us on the unique and wonderful "Pilipino", er, "Filipino" accent.

 

From YouTube user eightaugust: "Instead of blasting hate, shouldn't you haters be proud that Filipinos can actually speak two languages? Crooked or not, you can still understand it. I really admire those Filipinos who try their best to have conversations in English. Say for example, Manny Pacquiao. Did you notice that he never needed a translator? You'd be surprised to know that a lot of people who live in California CANNOT speak English. Many of them lived here for decades. So, who would you rather be?"
